OT: Any guitar players or musicians here?

Postby WildWestWelder » Fri Apr 07, 2017 4:58 pm

I have always found that some creative people in the metal working trades also enjoy music. Some just listen and some actually play and instrument. Myself? I play guitar, mostly my Martin 00016 flattop but I can also lay it down with my Fender custom shop Tele. I also play some pedal steel.

Anybody else?

Guitar here. Haven't played in about 5 years but was actually considered good at one time. Mainly acoustic. Still have a Takamine electric acoustic around here somewhere maybe pick it back up someday. Got really into bluegrass and then I just got busy with life and the rest is history.

i had and played a Penco 12 string i bought in the early 70s.
arthritic hands ended playing about 8 years ago.
Penco copied Martin and i think was sued an forced
out of business. Japanese made, a real beauty with
excellent sound. days gone by.

Tried to learn some acoustic guitar and never really had the skill set or the dedication. But still try now and again.

Fooled around with guitar years ago. Wasn't really any good at it. Much better as a live sound and recording engineer. Worked in a studio and had a live sound business for a while. Love music. Listen a lot. Mostly classic country.

How do you now a drummer is outside your door?

He doesn't know when to come in

Don't get mad my welding instructor who is a drummer said that one.

Everybody's favorite drummer joke around the studio I worked at was "What do you call a guy that hangs around with musicians?" "A drummer"

That was first told at the studio by a drummer, also.
